February/2020 UPDATES

29/February/2020 Posted by Freddy

        There will be a review of the latest episode of the new Clone Wars later on today, but here's our scheduled review of the 2003 Clone Wars series (it would have been nice if they'd had different names, and would have made my job a lot easier). Anyway, from Clone Wars: Chapter 5 we've added the Mon Calamari Knights Energy lance to the Star Wars D/6 Weapons Section, & Quarren Isolation League Crab cannon, Haor Chall Engineering Mini-sub, Quarren Isolation League droid carrier, & Haor Chall Engineering Sub-carrier to the Star Wars D/6 Vehicles Section.
        If you're looking for the CIS Manta Droid Subfighter , I had a look at the version I'd added to the site back in 2003, and I'm quite happy with it. So no new version of that today.

Retro RPG: Puppetland & Power Kill

        The skies are dim always since the Maker died.
        Perpetual winter. Perpetual night. We curse the name of Punch the Maker-Killer — but only when no one can hear.

        One-hour games have never been filled with more humor and horror, courage and cowardice, childlike wonder and childlike terror than the experimental role-playing game Puppetland. In one golden hour, you and your friends shall weave a tale none will soon forget: a tale of good-hearted puppets in a bad-hearted world. You shall rise up against the savagery of Punch the Maker-Killer with his army of Nutcrackers and his terrible Boys, sewn from the flesh of the Maker of all puppets. You shall be steadfast and true. You shall likely die trying.

RPG Hints?: My D&D Campaign went wrong!

        So, I've been running D&D for the kids at my local community centre, and after what I thought was a blisteringly good start, it all went a little wrong with a bit of a massacre. Let me tell you my tale of woe.

Retro RPG: Heroquest

        HeroQuest, sometimes written as Hero Quest, is an adventure board game created by Milton Bradley in conjunction with the British company Games Workshop. The game was loosely based around archetypes of fantasy role-playing games: the game itself was actually a game system, allowing the gamemaster (called "Zargon" in the United States and Canada, and "Morcar" in other territories) to create dungeons of their own design using the provided game board, tiles, furnishings and figures. The game manual describes Zargon/Morcar as a former apprentice of Mentor, and the parchment text is read aloud from Mentor's perspective.

        Several expansions were released, each adding new tiles, traps, artifacts, and monsters to the core system.

Retro Books: Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen by H Beam Piper

        Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen is a 1965 science fiction novel by American writer H. Beam Piper; it is part of his Paratime series of stories, and was expanded by other writers (mainly John F. Carr) to form the Kalvan series. It recounts the adventures of a Pennsylvania state trooper who is accidentally transported to a more backward parallel universe. It is Piper's last science fiction novel.
        The book is an expanded version of the novelette "Gunpowder God", which had been published in 1964 in Analog Magazine. "Gunpowder God" itself is a Paratime-series rewrite of the unpublished story "When in the Course", which takes place in the Terro-Human Future History milieu.

        Making our way slowly through Clone Wars 2003, and today we've reached Clone Wars: Chapter 4 and have added San Hill (Chairman of the InterGalactic Banking Clan) to the Star Wars D/6 Characters Section, Power lance to the Star Wars D/6 Weapons Section, and Durges swoop bike to the Star Wars D/6 Vehicles Section of the Site.

        Looking at the version of Durge I did back in 2003, it's embarrassingly bad (9D to resist damage, what was I thinking), so expect to see a new updated version of him in the next few days.

        Today we've reviewed Clone Wars: Chapter 3 and unsurprisingly for a series designed as a toy advert there's a load of new stuff to add to the site. Today we've added WESTAR-M5 blaster rifle, Baktoid Armor Workshop E-5s sniper rifle, & BlasTech Industries DC-15x sniper rifle to the Star Wars D/6 Weapons Section, the Baktoid Combat Automata / Baktoid Armor Workshop B1 battle droid, Battle droid assassin, & Commando recon droid to the Star Wars D/6 Droids Section, and the Dragon beast to the Star Wars D/6 Creatures Section of the Site.

        So we've got new episodes of Clone Wars, although this one is just the finished version of an episode we've seen before, but here's our review of Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Season 7 Episode 1: The Bad Batch.
        I might have a look and see if I can find any stats to do for this one, but since I've already reviewed it and done the unfinished version I doubt there's much to do.

        Okay, so my plan of reviewing and doing stats for Season 7 of The Clone Wars series as they are released turns out to not be a great one, as it turns out that they are releasing the series one episode a week, and that the first 4 at least are just unfinished episodes which I've done before.
        So what I've decided to do is to go back to the 2003 Clone Wars series and work my way through that. As although it's now been rendered as non-canon by Disney, at least I'll have covered everything broadcast for Star Wars (apart from Ewoks {shudder}). So based on the first episode Clone Wars: Chapter 1, today I've added the Industrial Automaton R4-P Astromech Droid to the Star Wars D/6 Droids Section, and the Kybuck to the Star Wars D/6 Creatures Section of the Site.
        With these being extremely short episodes (well, at least the first two seasons), I'm not envisaging there being tonnes of stuff from each episode, but we should at least find a few interesting things to add every day.

Daniel Scott Palter has passed away.

        Although the name may not be familiar to most, but Daniel Scott Palter was the founder of West End Games and was president of this games publisher as they published the Star Wars D/6 RPG among many others such as Ghostbusters, Paranoia, TORG and Shatterzone as well as classic board games like Junta.
        During a week when it's been announced by Fantasy Flight Games that they're leaving the RPG business so the latest version of the Star Wars RPG will be going out of production, it's not been a good week for Star Wars Roleplaying.
        The thoughts of us at RPGGamer are with the friends and family of Daniel Scott Palter at this sad time, and I hope we can all take a moment to appreciate the man and how much fun he facilitated bringing into our lives.

17/February/2020 Posted by Freddy

        Okay, I'm working my way through a bunch of the things I missed from the two seasons of Resistance. So today I've added Hallion Nark to the Star Wars D/6 Characters Section, Hallion Narks Sheathipede Shuttle, & Resistance Transport Shuttles to the Star Wars D/6 Starships Section, Warbird Gang Armed Cargo Skiff, Warbird Gang Cargo Skiff, Warbird Gang Speeder Bikes, & Jace Rucklins Speeder Bikes to the Star Wars D/6 Vehicles Section of the Site.
        I'll have another look through and maybe add anything I find during this week, but mainly I'll be taking the week off and waiting until The Clone Wars Season 7 is released this friday, and doing a review and any stats needed for it (although given it seems to be just the Bad Batch storyline, I'm not sure there's anything I'll need to add. But we'll see).
        If you know of anything I've missed from Resistance, let me know and I'll get it done this week.

        Well reaching the end of Star Wars Resistance: Season 2, and indeed the entire series with Episode 18: The Escape, and we go out on a whimper much like the series with only one addition to the site as pretty much everything else in the episode has already been done. So today we've added 5-L (First Order Mouse Droid) to the Star Wars D/6 Characters Section of the Site.
        But we'll be back tomorrow with some things we've noticed that we missed from Season 1 + 2 of the series to wrap everything away just in time for Clone Wars to start this weekend.

        I'm a bit tight for time today, so only one addition based on the second last episode of Star Wars Resistance: Season 2, Episode 17: Rebuilding the Resistance. Today we've added Hugh Sion (Resistance Pilot) to the Star Wars D/6 Characters Section of the Site.
        I'll finish of the series tomorrow, and then do a bit of a catch up with anything I notice I've missed (like the Resistance transports from todays episode).

Retro Books: The Guardians of the Flame by Joel Rosenberg

        Hi, this time I'd like to take a few minutes to talk about one of my favourite series of books, The Guardians of the Flame by Joel Rosenberg.
        This is a series of books which start with The Sleeping Dragon, released in 1983, the story follows a group of college students who are playing a Dungeons and Dragons style Roleplaying game, and suddenly find themselves in the game world as their characters. This suits some of the characters, most especially one of them who has Cerebral Palsy and is confined to a wheelchair in the real world, but is now a fully abled dwarf warrior.
        But the others find themselves at some disadvantage, an atheist playing a cleric finds herself unable to use her magic, the thief character lost a hand in a previous adventure and now finds himself crippled. Finally the wizards unleash their magic on finding their memorised spells in their heads just waiting to be cast and destroy some of the magic items they were equipped with.
        With only a basic knowledge of the world, they find themselves having to travel across the fantasy world to find the Sleeping Dragon which guards the gateway so they can return home. They are left a note by their gamesmaster who tells them that he has dreamt of this world since he was a youth, and he needs them to open the gateway so he can travel there, although later in the series we discover that he is lying and is actually a refugee from this world.

        Now I'm aware that Amleto was cut from the broadcast episode, but I liked her look, so included her anyway.

Top Five: 2019 RPGs on Steam

Forgot to put this here on Friday.

        Welcome to this episode of RPGGamer Top 5s, and this time we're going to do the top 5 2019 RPG's on Steam.
        Now, we've done the top RPG's on Steam in another video, one which is now the most popular video on my channel, so I'm definitely returning to the well on this one. However the biggest criticism of that video was that all of the games on it were older, and personally it had one of my pet peeves, with Skyrim and Fallout New Vegas showing up again.
        So this time we've decided to limit the list to only games which were released in the last 12 months, with all of the games being released in 2019, which means that I'm personally not familiar with any of these games so can't really say if they're really RPG's or not, so I've trusted those voting and just included the top 5 that met the criteria of the poll.

Retro RPG: Angel Roleplaying Game

        The Angel Roleplaying Game is a role-playing game published by Eden Studios, Inc. in 2003.
        Though it is presented as a distinct line, the Angel Role-playing Game serves as a wholly compatible companion to the Buffy the Vampire Slayer roleplaying game. The ruleset is virtually identical, but the game offers an extensive point-based system which allows players and Directors to create their own supernatural package Qualities, thus producing characters ranging from psychics to demons. The book is also noteworthy for its introduction of organizational rules, allowing players and Directors to easily and quickly define the resources, influence and obligation associated with any given group - including, potentially, the player characters themselves.
        Given the differences in both characters and setting, the Angel RPG describes that series' main cast and adversaries through the end of Season 3. Los Angeles is also presented, with the expected focus upon the fictional aspects of L.A. introduced on the show. Finally, the book includes the pregenerated adventure "Blood Brothers," which offers a plotline and general tone reminiscent of Angel's somewhat darker style. This is only the first part of a larger adventure, concluded in the Director's Screen.
